HILLSIDE, NJ – July 5, 2012 -  NECA/WizKids, the leader in collectible gaming, is excited to announce their partnership with the Valve Corporation to develop and launch their new line of Portal 2 Sentry Turret Collectible Figures.  In Portal 2, the Sentry Turrets are objects to avoid or destroy while maneuvering through the mind-bending puzzles presented at each level in the game— but you will want to collect all of these Portal 2 Sentry Turret Collectible Figures to stand guard over your work space and prized possessions!

The Portal 2 Sentry Turret Collectible Figures stand 3” in height and will feature both Open and Closed versions of 10 unique design patterns including camouflage patterns, animal prints and even a Hot Rod-motif.

As part of the announcement for the release of the set, NECA/WizKids Games and Valve are offering Portal 2 fans the opportunity to vote on one of four design patterns— the winning design will be released as part of the set.  The four nominated design patterns are a Lightning-motif turret, a turret with a “Mom” tattoo, a Hawaiian Shirt pattern and a Wood Grain pattern.  Please visit Valve Software’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/portal to vote for your favorite design pattern.  The winner of the “Fan Vote” will be announced on Valve Software’s Facebook page.
